My Thoughts are the actions and inactions of my heart and my mind. The words he found longing to say something about this and about that.
Hyperreligiosity to Grace
Thomas ventures through a perplexing web of hyperreligious thoughts that ultimately lead him to a mental institution three times. In this true story, Thomas takes you on his personal journey of how his thoughts led him astray and put him in many peculiar situations. After having lost a great career, and now living out of his truck and with charitable people on occasion, he continues to deteriorate, wandering the streets, and sleeping on benches and grass or below bridges.
God was not through with him and was always there, trying to reach Thomas with his still, small voice. He wanted to tell Thomas how much he loved him and the implications and finality of the work of the cross by his Son Jesus. In this book, Thomas shows how a wrong understanding of our loving Father and exalting works over faith and grace was a recipe for disaster in his life. Ultimately, Thomas came back to reality by the grace of God and lives a happy life today back in his career and on his feet again.
This book is for anyone interested in a true story about extreme mental conditions. It is also for those that have dealt with puzzling issues in life, those that seem to get caught in a spinning wheel of dos and don'ts, and whosoever that wants to know that no matter what you are going through, there is a beautiful light at the end of the tunnel. Your mess can become a redeeming message. If you have dealt with depression, discouragement, confusion, and loss, know that you are not alone. Healing and restoration can be yours. Never give up. Every life has an ending untold, and the author and finisher of faith, Jesus, wants to give you the abundant life he came to die to impart to us.

A Life Worth Living
“I found the poems exquisitely phrased and very moving. If people who commit suicide only knew what pain they cause. Pat has a rare gift, and it was a privilege to read her poems.”
- Teruko Craig
Senior Lecturer Emerita, Tufts University
“This is a moving and beautiful collection of tributes, written with great honesty, self-awareness, and profound sadness, tempered after a while with triumph. While I don’t normally read poetry, I couldn’t put this down without finishing it, as it was so engaging and moving.”
- Daniel Sharp
Former CEO, Professor, Deputy Attorney-General, California
“A sensitive and personal memoir expressed in poetic cadences that ebb and flow with the author’s thoughts. The poet builds her life based on work and relationships, remembering but rising beyond early tragedy.”

The Truth About Ruth
The story of Ruth has been limited and constrained by biblical presentations and interpretations. For too many Christians, Ruth is only known for her "where you go I go" position and her capture of wealthy Boaz. She has been shaped by Christendom to be the epitome of purity that all females should emulate if they desire an honorable and wealthy man as Boaz. However, on closer examination, the steps of Ruth may not be suited for New Testament women. Was the purity of Ruth the key factor in her capture of Boaz? Or was it only a ploy by many in Christendom to ensure the purity of text. The Truth about Ruth fully examines each chapter and key verses to give needed insight lost to readers and hearers by the exclusion of critical contextual information. Eleven little-known or unexplored truths about Ruth are presented to ensure that the reader can factually determine whether Ruth's course of action is one that should be recommended for Christian females. Are the strategies used by Ruth to get her man suitable instruction to girl scouts, teens, and females in general? If not, why not? Is it possible that the ways of Ruth were simply the ways of women in general, with no connection to the attributes that promote purity and holiness? Could it be that the story of Ruth is more appropriate for instruction in how not to get a man rather than the prevailing opposite? Bringing no preconceived ideas to the text, readers will be able to release antiquated dating ideas and embrace the readily applicable truths about Ruth that are appropriate for Christian dating and release those that are antithetical to promoting meaningful relationships that are bound in Christian love and respect for each other.
